Why is hand washing so important in prevention?
Viruses do not enter our bodies through our fingers! But during the day, we often subconsciously move our hand to our face. This is where the virus can enter our body through our nose, eyes and mouth and make us sick.
If we get this disease, is it possible for us to recover naturally?

I’m sick and have symptoms like a cold, what should I do?
If you have respiratory symptoms (such as cough, sneezing and runny nose), you should stay away from others and use a handkerchief when coughing and sneezing, and you should wear a mask when going out. You do not have to worry, and your illness is likely to improve on its own. But if the symptoms get worse, see a doctor.
How long does the virus survive in the open and how is it eliminated?
The virus is eliminated by washing with soap and water for 20 seconds (it is necessary to pay attention to washing hands for a long time) or with alcohol at 60 to 70 degrees. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. But it probably stays on the surface at a temperature of 20 degrees for up to “two days”.
Research shows that the virus probably stays on the surface for up to 9 days. But researchers still do not have full confidence in this and more research is needed.

I heard that when we are sick, we have to put the colored side of the mask towards our face, which contradicts what you said in the video. What is the correct method?
Regarding the use of masks, we should mention the image published in cyberspace that the color procedure (blue or green) in healthy people should be facing outwards and in patients facing inwards is completely wrong. The colored part of the mask is the waterproof part that must be outside and the white part is the absorbing part of the mask that must be inside all people.
